Default How can I return to the Church?

Hello, I was wondering, if I was baptized Catholic and went through with my first communion and such m, but then left the church and church hopped , am I still Catholic?

I decided to return to a Catholic Church do I need to do any classes or such? Can I take communion and do everything like a normal Catholic when I was one fully?

Default Re: How can I return to the Church?

Once someone is baptized Catholic they are always considered a Catholic. Baptism brings someone "into the family." They might leave for a while but they still belong to the family.
As long as you are not in what's called an irregular marriage (i.e. married outside the Church) then all you would need to do is go to confession. After confession you'd be free to receive the sacraments and participate in the life of the Church.

God bless.
